the puffy cliewdz, the cumulus clouds as we see what's going on throughout the day, lots of sunshine, more of that as we headed into mount airy, and still more of the same. no matter where you were definitely a nice day to be. as we look at maryland's most powerful radar now it is dry and it will remain that way as we go through the rest of the evening and then we'll see change in the forecast. in the meantime the highs today came in right around 67 degrees at the inner harbor, cambridge low 60s, more in fred lick and york, pennsylvania, and hagerstown around 60 degrees. the satellite and radar not picking up on a whole lot now. we are seeing clouds towards the west here, some will stream in as we go through the rest of the evening and widen out the view when you can see where the clouds are coming from and we are dry as of now. we'll stay that way, the reason why is that we are dealing with still an area of high pressure, starting to scoot off the coast here and with that it will allow a more moisture to get in here and he we're waiting for the cold front to traverse the area and it will do so as we go
into wednesday. that's the chance for rain and it will linger into thursday as well. before we çget there, we're still talking about the tropics. i know you're like why do you have this up? we're still in tropical season. it doesn't end until november. we do have tropical storm rena, the winds sustained about 40 miles an hour, and it is moving to the north-northwest at 7 miles an hour and we can see and i will step out of the way so you can see where it is going, back into motion and headed for the yucatan peninsula, and the good news is kind of staying away from us as of now because we're not quite sure of the traffic and you can see the big bubble as it heads back into the gulf of mexico so it could restrengthen so we'll have to keep you posted and updated on that information. hopefully it will just fizzle out. we're looking at the future trend now. this goes into motion, and you can see not a whole lot of change as we go through the over night into tomorrow just a few more clouds moving in. there is a slight chance for a shower and isolated shower as we go into tomorrow afternoon and to the evening but then we'll clear back out as high pressure builds back into the forecast and that's what we like to see for tuesday.
now, as we go into tomorrow the temperature will come in around 67 degrees so the temperatures will be above average. we will get the sun/cloud mix throughout the day and we have the chance for isolated shower in the forecast. by tomorrow night that temperature will be right around 45 degrees and the clouds will hover and then we'll start to clear things out. that's what we like to see because we will be seeing temperatures, not so bad, but we will be seeing plenty of sunshine as we go into tuesday. as we go into wednesday and thursday, we will have a chance for the showers to get to us as that cold front approaches but the big story on the map to me is the fact that that cooldown in the 50s will be the highs as we go into the end of the week into next weekend. temperatures can be in the 30s. >> great trick-or-treating. >> i know. i just did a blog on that. you have to check that out. >> you know what's scary, republicans in chicago.
